Game Preview: Miami welcomes Timberwolves to South Beach

New, comment

Miami takes on the Timberwolves tonight at 7:30 pm at the AAA and look to make up for dropping two back to back games.

The Story:

The Miami Heat welcome the (2-3) Minnesota Timberwolves to South Beach following a close loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night. The Wolves will most likely be without star point guard Rick Rubio after he suffered an ankle injury Friday night. In the case of his absence Mo Williams will likely start in his place. Miami desperately needs to get back into the zone they were comfortable in the first three games of the season, as a three game slide will deter their confidence.

Game Fact:

Miami is 28-20 all-time against the Timberwolves during the regular season
